Say Goodbye to Drop-Side Cribs

After years of incidents surrounding drop-side cribs, government regulators have seen enough. The Consumer Product Safety Commission - that's the group that keeps an eye on items that might be unsafe - is rolling out new guidelines that will essentially ban the sale of drop-side cribs. This is one of those things that some people may be resistant about because they feel drop-side cribs make it easier to put a baby into a crib or because they've been handed-down a drop-side crib. But these kinds of cribs might not be worth it anymore - not when the CPSC says the cribs could pose a "suffocation or entrapment risk to young children."

What do you think? Is the government over-reacting? Did you have a drop-side crib that was "just fine"?

I say it's about time. I made sure to register for a crib that didn't have a drop side. I think one injured baby is one too many. Just my two-cents-worth.

I think it's a good idea. Safety first.

Sometimes I do feel in some cases there is overreaction to these things, but to be honest I didn't have the drop side cribs just because I'd rather be safe than sorry.
